Soccer Goals- If you were at the Legion Fields last weekend, you may have noticed the brand new goals at each of our five fields. BYSA would like to thank Bill and Shannon Davis, Colleen and Dan Hennemann, David and Carrie Elliott, Mary and Mick McMullen, JoAnna Morgan, Aaron Ausman, Jeff Thompson and Dawn Hollifield for their time and dedication in assembling the 10 goals. The goals are heavy duty weighing around 200 lb each, please try to keep your child from hanging on the goals for their own safety. We also have padding on the way for each goal for the children's safety.
End of Season CCSA Tournaments- The 2014 CCSA Soccer Tournaments will begin on October 18th and last three weekends. Batavia will host Championship Weekend on November 1st and 2nd. Each division has been assigned a "host district" for the first two weekends. You can find where your team/division will be playing by visiting the CCSA website. (Bethel will host U6 on October 18th and 19th). The tournament will be a "Two and out" format with teams seeded based on standings. BYSA strongly urges all teams to participate in the tournament but if you decide your team cannot participate, then you will need to contact BYSA District Rep Andrew Weis by October 4, 2014. Team Treats are not covered for the Tournaments. Each Host District charges $10 for team treats. Some Districts also charge $1 per car to park, Bethel will not charge for parking. We wish everyone good luck and much success!
Player Fees: Player fees were due before the first game of the season. However, players who have not paid will not be able to particpate in the Tournaments or next season. Treasurer, Mick McMullen, is at the soccer fields about every weekend. You may pay him, mail in payment to PO Box 402, Bethel, OH 45106, or most coaches will gladly take it and pass it along. Please contact Mick McMullen at 513-340-6955 if you have questions or wish to pay by PayPal.
Parking: Our weekends are packed again this season with 20+ games every weekend. Although we have enough parking to cover games being played on all five fields, the crossover is what causes havoc. Please consider parking at a diagonal if parking alongside Legion Lane. We get 50% more cars parked compared to parallel parking. Please try to limit parking in the American Legion’s paved lot to overflow parking and DO NOT PARK in the grassy area in front of their flag.
Concession and Field Lining Schedules: Please note the Concession Schedule and Field Lining Schedule are now updated. Each team is assigned a field lining date along with 1-2 concession shifts. Please note that the team is assigned, not the coach. Coaches give much of their time training and coaching your children. Please return the favor and provide them with enough help that they do not have to man the concession stand when they should be preparing for your child's games. Fields are mowed on Friday and Friday evening is the preferred day to line. You may line on Wednesday or Thursday if necessary.
Team Treats: BYSA had enough in the budget again this season to prepay ALL TEAM TREATS. Please call Mick McMullen or Andrew Weis if a problem arises at any away game concession. Prepaid team treats includes only regular season games.
